Well ladies, there is something to be said for a gynae exam not that I had one lately. At the moment I have a trapped nerve in my leg and hip. My cyst was attached to my sciatic nerve so has been getting worse. I am the worlds worst to go to the doctor and back to get results. So I have mineral loss in my hip and my back sacroiliac joint. I eventually returned to gp for results of mri and xrays so I am biding my time between oncology appointments by having physio. Yesterday I felt it wasnt worth the pain but went back for more today. I am also Penneys best customer at the moment for undies.Nothing changes. Today and other days, I was pinched and poked and pressure applied to the sore points. The physio was lucky she didnt get a kick but I stuck with it. Then I had traction, I never had this before, its like you lie on a bed, you are strapped in and then strapped all around. I was wondering was I in a strait jacket? So I am now stretched to the limits, in more than one way. Eventually I was left free and have to return for more torture on Friday. However, I feel today we are getting somewhere, the muscles seem less tense and my left foot no longer seems to be cold. I have the knack of having other problems in between chemo regimes so I am living up to expectations. Although the oncology Reg did feel that I was going to let it get worse and not go back to the gp. I think they know me as the awkward one, who said from the start, "the oncologist is the last person I want to see in the hospital" Just some strange ramblings from a sometimes strange patient, All the best
